[WORK-AROUND] Bug on dragging windows of KDE/QT apps under openbox

If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.

Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't...

Apparent bug with KDE/plasma file associations

Posted 03-27-2016 at 01:22 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

At least in Ubuntu wily, it doesn't seem to allow you to chose the default application to open a file type. You try to do it, but it "magically" restores the previous default association before your eyes. Even if you chanced the config file, somehow. (I'm assuming it's mimeapps.lst, but I'm not sure. It seems that it's cool nowadays to have cryptic, hidden config files, avoiding to mention them unless strictly necessary, pretending it's all magic and config files don't exist)

Surprisingly, Krita from an unofficial Ubuntu's repo seems to work better than Debian's official

Krita "lemon", from some unofficial "neon" project, of Ubuntu, but running on Debian testing/Sid/Stretch.

I know it goes against all sorts of recommendations from both Debian and Ubuntu, perhaps even computing in general, but it seems to work fine so far.

The official version was quite slow to start up (to the point that sometimes I thought it simply wasn't going to ever start). And maybe it's just a difference between the versions (2.8 vs 2.9),...

Uniformity between GTK2/3 and QT/KDE with QT using GTK themes

Whereas gtk-qt-engine doesn't work very well, that is, GTK can't be easily made to "simulate" QT/KDE themes, the converse seems to work very well, and apparently no additional package is needed for that, but QT alone, or actually just qtconfig-qt4, in order to set the QT/KDE* theme as "GTK+".

So one third of the problem of desktop uniformity is solved if you have one GTK2 (I believe it's GTK2, not 3, I'm not sure) theme that you find good enough to have both in...
